Huh? $24 to go from Dialup - what about the Dialup fee you're no longer paying? Or are you dropping over $30 a month on DSL?

 

We get Verizon DSL down here for $35 a month - 2Mbps, no bandwidth cap - five bucks cheaper if you have an active phone line at the residence.

Wow! Well, I was paying $13 a month for Rogers Dial-up. Now, the DSL is $35 a month but the DSL without the cap is $65.99.

 

Plus, I just found out that they added a section to their user agreement which states that they are allowed to monitor my usage and report any illegal activity to the police. Not that I participate in illegal activities, but I really don't like being watched.

 

Luckily I haven't signed any contracts and can back out after one month. I think I may shop around...

I've had broadband service from my cable company now for at least 6 years.

 

When I started, I was paying about $30.00 /mth. Now I'm paying nearly $70.00 /mth.

 

Though some of that increase can surely be attributed to good old fashioned greed, much of it has to with the cable company spending lots of cash to improve the infrastructure. They spent lots of time and money running fiber all over Long Island.

 

In that 6 years, I've only had to call customer service twice and the problems were easily taken care of. Also, my internet service virtually never goes down (at least when I'm on it).

 

I'm not thrilled about what I'm paying but I'm definitely getting what I paid for.

Congratulations for your upgrade but, as you wrote, I think that you should really shop around; I am sure that you can find a better deal somewhere else. :thu:

I feel everyone is entitled to their privacy, even law abiding citizens. I hate Gestapo tactics.

Anyway, here I pay about $32.00 per month for high speed cable. It used to be $28 but has gone up over the years. The only thing here is that they will not let you have cable internet unless you subscribe to their cable tv as well. But, since we are, it's no problem. In fact, I bundled our land line phones, tv, and internet into one package with them. After seeing what some of you are paying for internet, it's not such a bad deal after all.

I have Rogers dial up and home phone. I love their service. They told me they don't offer DSL in my area.

 

The prices for Sympatico DSL are crappy. $35 a month for 1000MB and a 2Gig cap or $46.95 a month for 3Mb and no cap.

 

I'm checking out a local place here that is 3MB with no cap for $39.95 a month if I use my own modem.
